Cirq Bootlegger's Hill Pinot Noir 2013

$199.95

Rare new release from winemaker Michael Browne of Kosta Browne! CIRQ is a single vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir from Michael Browne, winemaker and co-owner of Kosta Browne. Limited. Aromatics: Piercing notes of deep cranberry, ripe raspberry, dark cherry and light notes of baking spice.  Flavors: Ripe pomegranate, rhubarb, raspberry and deep cranberry with hints of dark cherry and slight underbrush. Mouth feel: The wine immediately surrounds the tongue and deeply saturates the palate. It's as if a light velvet blanket was thrown onto a bed with thin, soft pillows slowly settling down into each crevasse providing the ultimate comfort. The wine then starts to expand to each side of the mouth slowly disappearing on the distant edges as if it were going to another place but not dying while all along continuing to hold on the mid palate.

Classy and balanced with a solid, sexy red fruit core. Will continue to evolve in the bottle I’m sure but it’s so good right now.

I’ve had this bottle twice before and this is the strongest showing. It seems at or near peak. Quite nice.
